With Thailand opening its borders to the world in 2021 it becomes possible again to think about a holiday in the land of smiles. Thailand is one of the few SEA countries that is open to tourists during the COVID pandemic. However it is not as open as it seems as there are some requirements and restrictions in place. What is Phuket Sandbox? How easy is it to enter Thailand? What documents have to be prepared to travel? Is it worth going to Thailand for only a few weeks? I travelled to Thailand in October 2021 and want to share my experience.
I started traveling solo when I was 22. My travels and experiences have been the best life teacher so far. I want to share things I learned from traveling solo and how they benefit my life today. This is part two.

It’s 7am in the morning and the sun starts to rise slowly over the mountains. It seems like whole La Orotava is still sleeping – all I can hear are the birds. With a cup of tea I’m going straight from my bed to the rooftop to enjoy the quiet hours and embrace a new day. It is Monday and I have to work, however I’m looking forward to this day. Looking forward to getting in touch with my colleagues and working on my projects, to doing yoga class before my lunch break, to exchanging ideas with other Nine coliving people, to going to a local beach in the afternoon and to ending the day with a family dinner and guitar session.
My job is 100 % home office based, which makes it possible for me to move around and work from different places. This implies though, that I can’t set up a permanent work station. In this article I’ll introduce my home office setup. It is light, flexible and I can still work efficiently – perfect for digital nomads or any people who need to travel with their office.
I don’t have a home. I mean I do have a home, but it’s not permanently located at one spot. I used to say, home is wherever my backpack is. But also it is everywhere I feel comfortable. Home is where family and friends are. But it can also be a familiar place I come back to. My home is always moving and to cut it short for you: This blogpost is about how my (moving) home came to life.
As probably many of us, I’m eagerly waiting to leave the country and start backpacking again. Deep inside I know though, that it might take quite a while til the world becomes “normal” again (which makes me wonder if the way we lived can even be described as “normal”, but that’s another story). However, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming and preparing yourself for your next trip. That’s why I want to tell you how to find the right hostel.
As some of you may already know, I spent over four months on the (for me) most beautiful island in Thailand: Koh Tao. Koh Tao means Turtle Island, and yes – a turtle is indeed one of the beautiful underwater animals you’re gonna encounter here. I never planned to stay on the island for so long, but as Corona happened I didn’t really have a choice. If it was me reading this article I would be asking myself a few questions: How did she end up staying on Koh Tao for four months? Who pays for that? What did she do? Were there any restrictions because of the virus? Well, let me answer these questions for you…
When I arrived in Pai I never thought that I’d end up staying there for two weeks. As those two weeks were already half of my 30 day visa and I wanted to see much more of this country, I decided to get a visa extension. In this article I want to share my experience about how to extend your visa by 30 more days – a quite easy and quick process.
